You will be able to find streams on reddit. I know you can find hundreds of streams all over the webs, it's pretty easy these days.

Brad says Kyrie, Gordon, and Al not likely to play after halftime tonight.

Like, I knew this was coming given how's he treated the preseason in the past, but why in the world would you not take advantage of these preseason games given how much roster turnover we had this summer? This just doesn't make sense to me.

Because it's the first pre-season game, and any value gained by those three playing 10 extra minutes tonight is outweighed by the downside of one of them getting hurt is they ramp up for the season, even tho the chance is small.  The goal is to have the team firing on all cylinders in April, not October.  10 minutes now will have no impact on that goal.
2018 Mock Trade Deadline:

Pelicans: Davis, Holiday, Vucevic, Rondo, Clarkson, Nance, Hart, Moore, Ilyasova, Ajinca, Hill, Miller, Jackson, Dotson, Dakari Johnson

Warriors:  KD, Steph, Klay, Draymomd, Iggy, Zaza, Young, Livingston, McGee, West, McCaw, Jones, Casspi, Jones, Looney

Google for picks.

I mean, I guess, but I think that's being overly protective given our roster turnover and the fact that the preseason was legitimately cut in half this year.

Brown is starting. CBS Said smarts experience and impact is needed off bench for now.

Those three are likely to lead the team in minutes this year.  They'll get their reps.  I'd much rather Stevens have a better idea of how much guys like Larkin, Theis, Tatum, Yabusele, and Ojeleye can play before the regular season starts.  Our big 3 isn't a mystery.

So It's Kyrie, Brown, Horford and Hayward, who is the fifth starter?
